Welcome to the Rockbox Technical Forums!
[big disks] they're only a problem to the PC, and only if the USB-to-ATA bridge has that problem.This problem definitely affects the Archoses, as we know. This problem probably will not affect the Software USB targets (Portalplayers, iPods included) because there is no USB-ATA bridge doohicky, there's just our software. (Yes, I used doohicky, I hate to admit it but I like that word).For the other targets (h100, h300, x5, m5, gigabeat, etc) I imagine it'll depend on the nature of the hardware.
The iPod video won't work with the new iPod Classic's hard drives. The iPod video uses what's called a "Zero Insertion Force" connector on the hard drive, instead of a regular 50-pin connector. If you remember the old days of the NES, you may have heard of ZIF.
Hmmm, so I could buy a 160GB classic and put the HD in my H140 and load rockbox onto it? Would I then be able to put my 40GB HD into the classic and sell that as a 40GB classic with scrolling album art and whatever the classic has? Would be a lot easier if the classic was rockboxable Is it definitely not rockboxable or just not yet known?
And of course, just as with the 80 gig ipods, no other company will bother putting out a similarly-sized player to compete with Apple.
